Family style lunch dinner with multiple choices. Quail, ribs, cod, shrimp, steak, lobster, etc. Wait staff was great. Food was OK, but not as good as advertised. Food was pretty bland, but did have some unique flavors. Cappuccino was excellent!

Most people would not stop or go in to this restaurant because it's in a rough industrial part of town. My client knew the area and suggested this place because of the food. This is a perfect secret. If you haven;t eaten here, you are...More
